“A puppet is an object, often resembling a human, animal or mythical figure that is animated or manipulated by a person called a puppeteer. The puppeteer uses movements of their hands, arms, or control devices such as rods or strings to move the body, head, limbs, and in some cases the mouth and eyes of the puppet. The puppeteer often speaks in the voice of the character of the puppet, and then synchronizes the movements of the puppet’s mouth with this spoken part. The actions, gestures and spoken parts acted out by the puppeteer with the puppet are typically used in storytelling. Puppetry is a very ancient form of theatre that dates back to the 5th century BC in Ancient Greece. There are many different varieties of puppets, and they are made from a wide range of materials, depending on their form and intended use. They range from very simple in construction and operation to very complex.” (Wikipedia)
We should not be puppets to God, government, wealth, society, culture, military or anything else. There is no puppeteer that should “animate and manipulate” us as individuals. We have free will and free choice… at least at this point in time…it needs to stay that way. Out lives are not to be controlled by strings and a dubbed over voice that is not our own.
